Certified, high school and college officials (active/patched) range from $20.00-25.00 per game/per official assignment.

We do not pay a 3rd party assignor.  All funds are distributed directly to the official.

Payment is made immediately following assignment each Monday through our bill-pay system. 



23 Things all parents/fans should know about officiating (12/12/16)

Power 2 Play Officiating

Interested in becoming an official?  Contact our assignors, Bruce Bird, 970.214.1798, brucebird@powertoplaysports.com and Lloyd Martinez, lloyd@powertoplaysports.com, at 720.438.1047.

Without officials, youth sports doesn't exist.  We require state high school league certification, background checks, and training that enables an official the ability to work high school games during the traditional winter season.  As a result of this certification, officials qualify to work Power To Play Sports events.

We assign 3-person officiating crews for all tournament games, and during our fall and winter leagues for 175-200 teams we provide 3-person crews for all grade levels starting at the older levels until our officiating resources are exhausted, then we have 2-person crews.

Officials are required to show up 30 minutes prior to the start of their first assignment, wear regulation high school officiating gear (shorts acceptable), and exhibit an effort that promotes safety and professionalism. 

Pre-game coach/officiating conferences are done prior to every game.  The state high school league bench decorum, and coaches boxes are enforced at all levels. 

We support our officials and protect them, enforcing the state high school league bench decorum, coaches box, scorer's table policies, and work diligently on education of parents and coaches on proper conduct directed towards officials.

We find that officials who show up, genuinely care about their performance and work positively with everyone involved have a great experience in our organization.

We do not pay a 3rd party assignor.  Officials earn 100% of the fees paid to them, without a middle-person assigning the games.  

Immediately following games completed, an invoice is sent to the officials to review their pay and verify.  Checks are cut immediately on Sunday evenings, or the very next day.  Our communication is centered to help officials and keep them involved in the game they love, and are able to earn a nice part-time employment opportunity.
